Hall of Fame coach draws crowd as he signs copies of "The Power of Negative Thinking"
Clayton Billion grew up in Louisville, Ky., the kind of place where the basketball allegiances of the Bluegrass State tug at the heart.
But Billion’s hardwood fix came not from watching Louisville or Kentucky. His loyalty belonged to the Hoosiers of Indiana, and that had everything to do with Bob Knight.
“We would drive up to Bloomington (Ind.), about three hours north, to watch Bob Knight coach,” said Billion, now a 22-year-old Texas Tech student. “I would have gone to Indiana if he didn’t leave. That’s really the only reason I’m at Tech, because of Bob Knight.”
